Clever players past and present

As in footballing brains - not them appearing on Countdown like Clarke Carlisle.

Who's been the smartest for us on the pitch? I thought Murray was very smart, as was Freedman. I guess our current guy would be Cabaye.

Garvan always struck me as having a good footballing brain, even if he was very slow and lightweight.

Think the promoted team looked much better with him in it.

Michael Hughes always struck me as one.

Not just in the usual creative sense (though he had plenty of creativity), but his ability to read the game, motivate those around him when they needed it and even his ability to rattle the cages of opponents just enough to affect their performance. A proper midfield general.

I'll trump your Mutch and Thomas with the Speroni of the last couple of years.

Getting paid for not playing and still everyone absolutely worshipping you

The leaner Neil Shipperley of circa 1997 vintage was an excellent back-to-play No. 9.

Mark Bright was a very sneaky forward, and clearly taught Wright a lot of things that helped him make the most of his natural ability.

Ray Houghton brought a wealth of experience to our midfield.

Jedinak was a master of man management and leadership - his influence on the field stretched way beyond his footballing talent

I would say Mark Bright was very much underestimated for his contributions in the making of Ian Wright's effectiveness as it was he who was the silky smooth unique mover in the partnership. So ok Mark never looked the most elegant mover so may have seemed clumsy at times, but they were a classic "twin strikers" combination of how to complement eachother's play and Mark was a vital part in that superb pairing.
Another to throw into the mix would be Andy Johnson, who did so much work in creating all of his opportunities himself with his endless movement and constant running off the ball, a managers dream (take heed Benteke).

Some interesting contributions. I wouldn't necessarily have said players like Jedinak, Hughes and AJ were 'clever', but I guess they kind of were in a less obvious sense.

I was too young to appreciate Lombardo. Just how good was he?

Jerry Murphy.

Left-footed midfielders in general often give me the impression of being calm, stylish and intelligent. Like Jason Puncheon although he evidently peaked a good year ago. Owen Garvan, Simon Rodger and, of course, Geoff Thomas are other recent examples.

Puncheon towards the end of 13/14 and 14/15 was very clever.

When fit, Chamakh seemed ahead of everyone else on the pitch.
